Stupid Mistakes Tattoo Artists Witnessed

Tattoos can be tricky business. One typo or slip of the hand can have someone wearing "I love moom" on their bicep for the rest of their life. Tattoo artists take multiple precautions to idiot-proof the process, but we still end up with tattoo choices that have people asking questions. Sometimes the customers themselves are uncontrollable, like in the case of this male Karen who didn't believe a tattoo shop owner.

Graphic Designer Trolls Prospective Client

What makes this clever act of trolling from a graphic designer all the better is the fact that they go ahead and put that much detail into each logo. Like the tagline on the last one? Pure gold. Either the poor client on the other end of this interaction was truly as clueless as they come across, or they were just leaning into the ridiculous situation.

Skillful Creations of Dubious Taste

Why do a weird job bad when it could be done with so much skill that it makes you question everything? Sure, taste is subjective, but most people would admit that a hand made Dora the Explorer themed knife set isn't exactly the greatest use of most people's time and effort. It's still cool that people continue to make skillful creations of questionable taste.

Student Wins Art Contest to Spite Rude Art Teacher

Sometimes teachers misjudge their students, like this teacher who underestimated their students during a social experiment. Other times, the powers that be can be mistaken and disrespectful, like this staff who made a student wait to report a fire. In this case, it was an art teacher who was soundly put in their place after handing down some harsh criticism. Art is subjective, anyway.
